OK, I think you are missing some details of the workflow used to get patches
to Linus. As far as I know, he mostly pulls rather than accepts patches,
that's one of the reasons there are so many different kernel repositories
on They are mostly queues of stuff waiting for Linus to pull

If that is correct, then what we really want is email when something
lands on and is not yet included in Linus' tree. We can
certainly set up a trigger to send email in that case.
